What's Up Wednesday

Today I'm joining the What's Up Wednesday Link Up.

Let's get this party started!




{What We're Eating This Week}

Nothing too exciting.

We had tacos on Sunday and I had leftover tacos for dinner on Monday AND Tuesday.  I didn't want to waste any food and, to be honest, I was just too lazy to cook this week.  At this point though, I'm tooooooootally over tacos - well, unless the tacos are served to me alongside a margarita (see below). ;) In that case, I'm all in.  Ha!

Tomorrow's my grocery shopping day for the week, so I'll have to menu plan some delicious meals.

Any suggestions?


{What I'm Reminiscing About}

#firstworldproblems

Back in the day when I used to own a laptop and had a gym membership...

...those were the days.


{What I'm Loving}

My group of girlfriends.

All of these girls are amazing!  Not to mention that they put up with me and all my craziness!  Haha!  We've all known of each other for years now, but it's only been until recently that we've all started getting together as a group.  I'm so lucky to have them in my life and I consider them family.


{What We've Been Up To}

Enjoying this beautiful February winter we're having here in Michigan.

Within weeks, we went from this...




...to this.  Crazy!





{What I'm Dreading}

It getting cold again.

Not going back to winter so much, but rather temps that may fall below freezing.  I can handle freezing temps, but below freezing makes me want to cry.


{What I'm Working On}

Here's a sneak peek...

Any guesses?



{What I'm Excited About}

Dreaming.  Lots of dreaming.

Jon and I have been dreaming and discussing whether or not we should do a few exterior renovations to our home or not.  Our house was built in the seventies and has had a handful of owners since it was first built.  Luckily, the previous owners before us had put up new siding, a new front door and a new garage door.  The roof was only about ten years old when we moved in - thank goodness.  However, the time has come to possibly tackle the roof and a few other projects on the outside.  So we'll see what we end up doing.  It's definitely a topic of conversation over here and I've been pinning over on Pinterest like a madwoman!  Just thinking about the possibilities give me the butterflies!


{What I'm Watching/Reading}

For Christmas Jon bought me a subscription to The Magnolia Journal.  I've read almost every page of this issue and I find it to be super inspiring!



{What I'm Listening To}

Currently?  Like, at this exact moment?

The sweet sound of silence...  ;)


{What I'm Wearing}

You want to know something funny?

I'm wearing the exact same outfit I was wearing last month for this same link up - black yoga pants with a gray shirt.  I'm wild, I tell ya' - WILD!


{What I'm Doing This Weekend}

Drinking margaritas!

I'm meeting up with my girlfriends ^^^ for some much needed margaritas...and some Mexican food, of course!

I also plan to work on a few home projects, as well as paint a few things for my friend Ashley's nursery.


{What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month}

Henry and I plan to cut a rug!

Henry and I will be attending our first Mother/Son dance and I seriously can't wait.  I bought this outfit for him off of Zulily and I pretty much think it's the cutest thing ever!  I'm also planning to have him wear it to a couple of weddings this summer.  To me the outfit screams, "northern Michigan wedding!"  Haha!  Now to find myself a dress to wear...



{What Else Is New}

I finally took down all of our Christmas wreaths.  *gasp*  I know, I know... How can I keep them up for so long?  Well, I usually leave them up in the winter when we have a bunch of snow so that our home is still decorated with winter-y type stuff.  But after this heat wave we've had here in Michigan I decided to take them down.  I do believe we're supposed to be seeing snow sometime again this weekend, so I'm sure I'll be a bit sad about the wreaths being gone, but at least now I'll have a jumpstart on my spring home decor!  Woo-Hoo!

That's it for me over here!  Thanks a million for stopping by my little blog.

That makes two blog posts this week!  Whoop Whoop!  ;) ;) ;)
